Home Learning

Please follow this link for details of our Remote Learning Curriculum to be followed by students from the 5th of January 2021.

Home Learning

Home Learning is an essential part of the curriculum at Hampstead School.  It improves students’ thinking and memory and helps students develop positive study skills and habits that will serve them well throughout life.  Research shows that regular home learning encourages students’ to use their time wisely, and teaches students to work independently whilst taking responsibility for their own learning.

In addition, home learning allows students to review and practice what has been covered in class and helps students to get ready for the next day’s lessons.  In some subjects, home learning helps students learn to use resources, such as libraries, reference materials, and computer web sites to find information and so it encourages them to explore subjects more fully than classroom time permits.  It also allows parents to understand more about what students are learning in school

At Hampstead School home learning is set in accordance to the scheduled timetable as follows:

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9)

English, Mathematics and Science – one home learning activity or task once a week.
All other subjects – once a fortnight.

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11)

All subjects are set one home learning activity or task once a week.  This is vital for GCSE preparation.
